Adobe Australia – along with other Adobe subsidiaries globally – has unveiled its new “Creative Cloud” line of products which will see users able to download and use its usually hefty-priced Creative Suite 6 line of products for a monthly subscription.
The company believes subscription pricing and online delivery will see thousands of smaller users – unable or unwilling to stump up the $2000-plus asking price for Creative Suite – able for the first to time access its products for creating newsletters, magazines, Web sites and other publications, both physical and online.
Australian users will pay $62.99 per month, with an annual contract. A “special introductory offer” of $37.99 per month is available for current individual users of CS3, CS4, CS5 and CS5.5.
That compares with having to ante up at least $1975 for the CS6 Design Standard boxed set – and up to $3949 for the top-of-the-range CS6 “Master Collection”
The Creative Cloud suite is said to also integrate tablet applications, such as Photoshop Touch, into everyday work, synchronising and storing files in the cloud for sharing and access on any device.
